WER for add-ins in Vusual Studio? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    Is it possible to use WER system for analyzing crashes for my product, if my product is the plugin, which is integrated in Microsoft's Visual Studio?

     

    If yes, what additional steps I shoud do for that?

    If no, why?

     

    Thanks in advance.

  • Yes, it is possible provided that VS  or some other component does not swallow the exception first. You can validate whether that happens or not by crashing your component and verifying that the WER error reporting UI does come up to report the crash.

    Thanks
